Gati, a religious ritual is being performed at Garh-Mukteshwar for our dearly departed ancestors in order to provide them moksha. People from Haryana, Punjab & Delhi perform gati poojan at Braj ghat in the month of pitar.
Deep Daan is also a religious activity being done at Garh Mukteshwar. It is believed that in this month our pitras came to earth from heaven & deep daan is an important activity to show an honour towards them.
Every year in the month of pitar, priest/purohits from Garh mukteshwar conducts Pitra Maha-yagya for the pilgrims so that their ancestors may get sadgati & move to next stage of life. One should have to take part in the Maha-yagya by their family names in the month of pitar & perform the ahuti in the name of their ancestors at Garh Mukteshwar.
